How’s business? Busy and always looking for a new challenge.
One thing you wish everyone knew about your business: We strive for excellence and complete customer satisfaction during and at completion of the job. We offer a fair price up front and the job only needs to be done once.
Something you offer that a customer won’t find elsewhere: The versatility I bring to the job so that multiple contractors are not needed; and in-depth problem-solving dedicated to accurately completing the job with great results.
Advice to young entrepreneurs: Customer comes first; continue learning about new methods, techniques and materials. On-going education in any business is important.
Your first job: This year: Roof leak due to chimney deterioration. Relaid chimney stone, flashed stone to roof, replaced rotted roof wood and shingles.
Your role model (in business or in life generally): Harry Nenninger, who always said, “Any job worth doing is worth doing RIGHT.”
The key to a successful business is: Personal integrity, patience and planning.
